Holiday Market

Festival Dates:

Saturday, December 14th, 2019

Rockport Makers Festival is a holiday shopping festival in the seaside village of Rockport, Mass. This is the second year of our hugely successful event co-produced by Rusty and Ingrid Creative Company, The Town of Rockport and The Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce

Our first year created a magically festive atmosphere in the town and brought thousands of holiday shoppers to shop for handmade gifts. The festival is a town-wide event, with events happening throughout the walkable village, including horse drawn carriages, live music, food trucks and creative ”maker” events. We produce a full-color map to guide visitors to the attractions, and offer a tote bag giveaway and raffle prizes.

A highlight of the festival are our indoor Holiday Markets which happen in several iconic locations throughout the village. This year, we are adding a third market location to expand the market, and to create a space for scheduled interactive crafting events. 

Our 2019 Holiday Market locations include: 

The Rockport Art Association and Museum

12 Main St, Rockport, MA 

  • Holiday Market in the galleries of this beautiful, and iconic destination

Brackett’s Ocean View Restaurant

25 Main St, Rockport, MA 

  • Beautiful ocean views, with attached cafe & donut shop 

and new this year:

Spiran Hall

18 Broadway, Rockport, MA

  • An historic meeting hall with two floors and space for scheduled maker demos and events.

This event is produced by Rusty and Ingrid Creative Company, Rockport-based makers and long-time market vendors. We look forward to an amazing event this year!
